Mixed emotions about season-opening win

I have mixed emotions about the Warriors’ season-openingĀ 132-128 win against the Houston Rockets. Emotion No. 1: Relieved I’m glad the Warriors got a win. The Rockets are a good team, even though they were playing the second night of a back-to-back and without Yao Ming. The Warriors had no excuses if they had lost this game, so it’s good that they held on for the victory. Emotion No. 2: Excited There were a lot of good things to take away… Read More »

Real basketball is finally here!

First, I apologize for the long delay in posting something new on Warriors Wire. I have been swamped at work with high school sports, the World Series and many other responsibilities. I’ve had to take a step back from this blog because of other demands on my time. So I apologize. I’m excited for a new NBA season and can’t wait to see how this Warriors team performs. As most of you know, the Warriors open the regular season tonight… Read More »

Reasons I’m optimistic about the Warriors

Grouped in with the teams you’d expect to populate such a list (the Heat, the Bulls, etc.) are the Warriors. The team has had a pretty good month, trading for David Lee and locking up a potential starter at small forward (Dorell… Read More »

What is the Warriors’ weakest position?

If the Warriors don’t make another significant move (free agent signing, trade, etc.) before the 2010-11 season begins, what will be the weakest position on the team? I think we can exclude three positions from this conversation. Even without a true backup right now, point guard, with sophomore sensation Stephen Curry, is the strongest position on the team. The next strongest positions are shooting guard and power forward. Both positions have talent in the starting lineup (Monta Ellis, David Lee)… Read More »

Thoughts on the sale, Lee, Wright and more …

I’ve been on vacation for the past week, attending a family wedding, and was unable to find any free time to put together anything of worth regarding the vast amount of Warriors news that has broken during that time frame. I have a lot to catch up on. In order of importance: THE SALE Finally, the process that began in July 2009 has become reality. When I first heard that Chris Cohan was considering selling the team, it was the… Read More »
